Adding images to your PowerPoint presentation can make it more visually appealing. But when you first add a new image, it covers everything else that is in the picture, including text. To move images and other items back and forth to create the storage you want.
Send a picture behind text
If you have not already started and open the PowerPoint presentation, you work with and Skip the picture with the text and the picture.
We are going to go over storage images in a bit, but right now we are only working with a single picture and some text.
As you can see in the picture above, the Geek image covers the "How-To Geek" text. To place the image behind the text first, click on the image to select it and then go to the "Format" tab.
Over in the "Arrange" section, click the "Send back" button. A drop-down menu appears with two options.
"Send Backward" sends the image back one level. "Send to Back" places the object behind all other objects in the image. Currently, select "Send backwards" (we'll talk about the storage image a bit more).
Now your picture will be behind the text.
Alternatively, you can right-click on the object, click on the arrow next to "Send to back" and then select "Send back".
The "Bring Forward" and "Bring to Front" option appear on the Format tab and the context menu works the same. You would use these options to move an item over another. So, in this example, we could also have chosen the text and produced it to achieve the same effect.
Now let's say we have three objects and we want to cook them in a way that all of them serve their purpose. For example, let's give Geek the name tag. We use three objects:
- An image of the How-To Geek logo
- A solid white rectangle
- A text box with black text that reads "The Geek"
What we want is for the image to be be in the back, the white rectangle should be in front of the picture, and then the text to be in front of the white rectangle. However, we created our text and white rectangle first and then added our picture, so the picture is now above all else.
Note: Yes, we know that we could only enter text in white rectangle form to make it easier, but we do this in this way for a simple example of layering.
First, we want to select the image logo and send it to the back because we want all other objects to appear in front of it. Select the image, right-click it and then select "Send to back" (or use the button on the "Format" tab).
sends the image Geeken to the very rear layer, which you can see below.
But as you can see in the picture above, our text is hidden behind the white rectangle. Then select the white box, right-click it and select this time "Send backwards" from the "Send to back" options.
Note that if you select "Send to Back" your white rectangle will disappear behind Geek.
Here is what we have now.
Now, from the back To the front we have the picture, the white rectangle and then the black text box in front. That's the order we were after.
While the odds for you need to give a name for a logo in a presentation is quite narrow, image storage is an important part of the work with more complex images.
